Heliski Greece

 

When someone thinks of Greece, it’s usually lots of sun, great beaches and bleached white buildings. But heliskiing? Really? Believe us: the skiing is unbelievable! Mt. Olympus, with its 52 peaks, and the slopes of the vast Pindus mountain range are a Heliskier’s paradise.

Greece is a very mountainous country and receives winter snow storms from the north, south, east and west, as compared to central Europe, which mainly gets their weather from the west. Our partner, HHSG — with over 18 years’ experience conducting heliski trips around the world — has provided us with two trip options that include additional flying time.

EXCLUSIVE TO ALPIN LUXE, in partnership with HSGG — the “Number One” heliski company in Greece — is offering both PRIVATE and SEMI-PRIVATE heliski trips in February 2020 with Extra Hours of Flying Time! These trips also include unlimited 1st descents!

 

 

We begin skiing on Mt. Olympus, which rises 2,917 meters straight up from the Aegean Sea making it one of the biggest vertical ascents in Europe. Our accommodations are at the luxurious Litohoro Olympus Resort Villas and Spa on the shoreline of the Aegean Sea with panoramic views of the mythical Mt. Olympus and all the amenities one would expect from a 5-Star resort hotel. The helicopter is based at the Litohoro resort, so you walk out of the resort in your ski clothing, skis and boots and are on the summit of Mt. Olympus in less than 5 minutes! Our goal is always 6 runs per day, but we most often get 10 runs (which is double what you’d get from most heliski companies). The massive size of Mt. Olympus combined with spectacular views of the Aegean Sea is mind blowing!

 

First Tracks on the slopes of the Pindus Mountains.
5 days spent exploring some of the most beautiful untouched powder in the world.
Relaxing on the decks of the Litohoro is the perfect way to unwind after a long day of skiing.

 

After 2-3 days on Mt. Olympus, we Heli over to the Pindus Mountain range, which begins 40 km north of Athens and continues into Albania. These mountains have some of the best heliskiing terrain on Earth. The area is so large that you could ski there every day for 10 years and never ski the same run twice. In addition, so everyone can truly experience the wonderful Greek culture, we include a sunset après ski cocktail cruise on the Aegean Sea and visits to other historical landmarks. This is more than a trip of a lifetime – it’s bragging rights for life!

 

Relax and unwind in style at the Litohoro Spa.
Elegant decor and world-class service will make you feel right at home.
